2012 Volvo S60 T5: Easy Daylight Saving Adjustment
November 07, 2011
Some cars make it so difficult to adjust the clock to Daylight Saving. How many of you find yourselves driving around with the wrong time the rest of the year than bothering to figure out how to change it. Raise your hand. I'll have you know that with the 2012 Volvo S60 T5 that isn't an issue. I figured it out all by myself and without having to crack open the manual once.
First let me say that I actually like how the "OK," "Menu" and "Exit" are grouped together on one button. Editor Brent Romans blogged his dislike for the Volvo's interface but at least with regards to adjusting the time, it couldn't be more simple.
1) Under settings, find "System options."
2) Hit "OK" on "Time."
3) Scroll to hour, minute or AM/PM, hit "OK" and then scroll to the correct time.
4) Then scroll to "OK" and hit the "OK" button.
Easy peasy, no? Of course it would be even easier if car clocks just automatically adjusted to DST like my iPhone and computer but at least this wasn't too bad.
